The Colville Confederated Tribes (CCT) and the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) continue their collaboration on basin-wide PIT-tag array systems in the Okanogan River Basin. The 2014 adult steelhead spawning season had the largest coverage of interrogation sites within the lower Okanogan River Basin to date. Twenty total locations, seven permanent and thirteen temporary, spanning from just north of the town of Oroville, WA to just south of the town of Mallot, WA were deployed for the 2014 season.
New and notable system locations include the Lower Okanogan River site near Malott, WA, Antoine Creek near the barrier removal site, Ninemile Creek in the Eder Wildlife Unit area and Omak Creek above and below Mission Falls. Data from the permenant sites are publicly available from the PTAGIS website.
and data from temporary sites will be available from PTAGIS soon.
